Want to hear something really exciting?! Trader Joe’s has fresh riced cauliflower in their refrigerated vegetable section. It’s nothing but cauliflower. You will be just as excited as I am if you have made fresh cauliflower rice. Cauliflower rice is probably one of the most annoying things to make. I don’t understand how cauliflower can manage to get all over the place while making it. Thank you Trader Joe’s for making my life a little bit easier! I tried it out for the first time with this meal, and it tasted great! I sauteed the cauliflower rice in some olive oil, garlic, and a little bit of soy sauce. It paired perfectly well with this shredded pork!
